About Login Control

  • LoginButton: The button to submit the users request for authentication.
  • RememberMe: Configurable to display a checkbox giving the user the option to store a persistent cookie on the users machine.
  • Title and Instruction: Text to orient and guide the user through the process.
  • Links: Configurable links to help, password recovery and user registration information.
  • Validators: Required field validators for the username and password textboxes.
